@2girafes what brand? I need to give him a dairy free one as he's CMPI.
I take one and I'm breastfeeding him, I wonder if he's not getting much of that benefit.

Says on the label free from dairy, gluten, egg, colours, flavours or preservatives. Doesn't need to be refrigerated.
I started with 2 scoops a day (2g) but after a few weeks dropped to 1 scoop (1g) and have had no problems.

Dd is on a probiotic as well. It's called baby biotics. I mainly started it to help her gut flora after a course of antibiotics but I've heard they can be helpful for other digestive issues. I also give dd sheep's yoghurt which has natural probiotics but I don't know if that's a no no for cmpi?

I have him a glycerin suppository which worked a treat but I've also bought some coloxyl drops just in case. I also bought some dried prunes so I'm off to check out a recipe for purring them.

Just thinking- could you give him a clean, wet flannel to suck the water out of? Or a syringe or drops from your finger?
All the 'p' foods are supposed to help with constipation... And stone fruits. I give DD apricot and/ or pear with every meal to keep things moving, and make sure I keep up bf's during the day. She is mostly on finger foods (we are doing BLW), but I do give her the apricot and pear on a spoon. We use the tinned pie apricots. I gave DS prunes- put in a pan with a bit of water and simmered and then puréed.
She just went a whole week without a poo.... Let's just say the outcome required a bath

7 month old constipated
I offer mostly pears apricot pumpkin and sweet potato. I've tried small bits of apple banana and other veg purées but given his issues I've mainly stuck to the first 4 I mentioned.
Thanks for the info on prunes and I will definitely try the flannel idea too
And oh my! Re: her poop! Poor you! Must have been a relief for her though! Haha

With the prunes, all I would do is soak them in warm water for a while to soften them and then purée them with some water added (just to loosen the mix a bit) and then add it to some puréed pear.

So I gave him the suppository which in the past has worked instantly. Well about 5 hours later this time he did quite softer than usual poo. Then 1 hour later..... We just had a poopy splosion!
So I'm now wondering if it was the bran or the suppository? Unless the suppository cleared the backed up bit and the bran softened the rest that came out after?
